101 BEST WEBSITES FOR WRITERS

by Cindy R. Williams

101 BEST WEBSITES FOR WRITERS is an article written by Kara Gebhart Uhl, and printed in the WRITER'S DIGEST, May/June 2015 issue, beginning on page 38.

I mention this to you because it is an incredible source of writing websites, the cream of the crop, the top of the mountain, you get the drift.

Which brings me to WRITERS DIGEST. I recommend it to all writers. It has timely information for all writers in all genres. It is worth the subscription price. WRITERS DIGEST is online.

Here are a 10 of the many award winning websites:

warriorwriters.wordpress.com.
This blog teaches writers how to brand, create a platform and use social media. It is written by best selling author, Kristen Lamb.

quickanddirtytips.com/grammar-girl
The blog by Mignon Fogarty lists "friendly tips, with simple memory tricks."

Over 215 billion random opening lines. classrooms use the thestory.com/jr.htm.
